A flash flood like this is one of the most dangerous things in nature. Watch how this area is dry one moment and a torrent of rage the next.
Some areas of the world are dry and arid places, and those places don’t absorb the water that they do get very well.
Here’s one such case, in which a bone-dry river bed is a dust bowl one second and a raging river the next. Check out the cars on the bridge… that is, if they’re still there when it’s all over.
Here’s the footage:
That. Is. Incredible. Did you see those cars get in each other’s way trying to get out of there? The crazy thing is how sturdy that bridge turned out to be, and yet by the end of the video you can’t even see it. Amazingly, it’s buried under there somewhere!
Bottom line: if you think you might get caught anywhere near such an occurrence, turn around and get a safe distance away. This is an amazing video, but it’s not worth someone’s life.
